Upcoming Star Wars 1313 video game getting some helping hands from all facets of LucasFilms.Upcoming Star Wars 1313 video game getting some helping hands from all facets of LucasFilms.

Now that Disney has acquired LucasArts some interesting news is starting to trickle out regarding their games division. It seems that all of the different entities under LucasFilms such as Industrial Light and Magic, Skywalker Sound, Lucas Animation, and LucasArts are all collobarating on this next generation title. Star Wars 1313 will take place in the seedy underbelly of Corsuscant which alone sounds like an interesting premise. Whatever does come out of this Disney/Lucas effort it will most likely be better than The Force Unleashed 2 by default (zing).

Ten neat Star Wars shirts for your viewing pleasure, go forth and wear The Force proudly.Ten neat Star Wars shirts for your viewing pleasure, go forth and wear The Force proudly.

Be the envy of all of your friends as you wear your Wookie of the Year t-shirt with pride and honor knowing that you've served The Republic and rid the galaxy of evil forces who came at you with robotic droids. They may have overrun your planet and caused a Jedi Master to flee into exile but in the end you can always crash with your Ewok friends on Endor and call it a day. Too much?

No day is ever complete without a Star Wars a capella light saber battle and accompanying soundtrack.No day is ever complete without a Star Wars a capella light saber battle and accompanying soundtrack.

The fun begins about fifteen seconds in if you can't see the giant visual countdown over the video. In a rare instance I find myself agreeing with some of the YouTube comments. So yes, please make more of these and apply this effect to even better movies. Edit: spoke to soon, there is already a Matrix version out there.

George Lucas pulls the plug on Star Wars movie marathon over in Brooklyn.George Lucas pulls the plug on Star Wars movie marathon over in Brooklyn.

Organizers claim Lucasfilm's legal stormtroopers fired off a cease-and-desist order just two days before the event. Organizers of the 13-hour screening, which had been slated for the Wicked Monk in Bay Ridge on July 3, promptly called it off. The order cited copyright infringements and added that there was a moratorium on public 'Star Wars' screenings.

Yes, with a little cutting, pin-striping, and some paneling you too can have a R2-D2 lamp for your home of office. Bonus points if you can have it make his signature chirping noise when you actually turn said lamp on.

Sorry to build your hopes up with that headline Star Wars fans, but these kicks are for kids only. However, if the comments on the source site are any indication - an adult line of these sneaks would probably sell too.

Man finishes LEGO Star Wars space ship from scratch after just two years.Man finishes LEGO Star Wars space ship from scratch after just two years.

This model was completed using approximately 30,000 pieces of LEGO and remarkably without the direct use of a licensed LEGO instruction manual. That's right - this Droid Control Ship was assembled using only schematics from a book of Star Wars space ships. That's some impressive architectural dedication right there.

Ten creative and geeky hoodie designs for your viewing pleasure.Ten creative and geeky hoodie designs for your viewing pleasure.

I added 'geeky' to the headline mostly because all of these hoodies are of the Star Wars, comic book or video game variety (not that there's anything wrong with that; I just felt it had to be clarified). Source link also contains purchase links for those who are so inclined. By the way, that R2-D2 hoodie will set you back $92 bucks.

Ackbar, a member of the Mon Calamari species who led the Rebel Alliance ships into the Battle of Endor, appears to be the early favorite. He has more than 14,000 Facebook fans. Websites like notatrap.org -- 'It's a trap!' was his famous line -- are promoting Ackbar's candidacy.
